How To Make The Perfect Ice Cream Sundae

There are many ways to enjoy Crosstown ice cream, from scoops on a cone to straight out the tub, in front of your favourite movie, on a banana split, or our favourite in an ice cream sundae. 

We’ve created the ultimate Crosstown ice cream sundae, which we cannot wait to share with you. But, before we get into what goes into our sundae, let’s take a little look at where the ice cream sundae began. 

Here is what we know, in 1881 in small town in Two Rivers, Wisconsin it was a Sunday (who would’ve guessed). George Hallauer was on his way to his local ice cream parlour for an ice cream soda, upon arriving he was informed by the owner George Edward Berner, that he couldn’t serve him the ice cream soda due to the recent ‘Blue Laws’; a law that labelled soda as being inapproriate to be sold or consumed on Sabbath. Instead of sending the customer away, he served him a scoop of ice cream with chocolate syrup drizzled on top; an ingriedent which was used in an ice cream soda. 

The treat grew in popularity and was given the name ‘Treat for Sundays’, to avoid offending the reglious, it was then given the name we know today ‘ice cream sundae’. 

Now, ice cream sundaes have come a long way from where they started, ours features a whole host of Crosstown goodies, from small-batch ice cream (of course), handcrafted cookies, extraordinary chocolate, the list goes on…  

Without further ado, what you’ll need:
– A sundae glass
– One scoop of the Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt ice cream
– A handful of resh strawberries – sliced
– Two scoops of the Madagascan Vanilla ice cream
– One Chocolate Chip cookie – broken into large chunks
– One square of Crosstown’s Almond Brittle chocolate
– 15g of Mörk chocolate powder
– 20g of water
– Sprinkles

How to make the Crosstown ice cream sundae:

For the sauce, take the Mörk chocolate and water combinging together to make a smooth sauce, perfect for drizzling. 

To assemble your sundae, add a scoop of the Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt ice cream, followed by a layer of fresh strawberries, and chunks of  the Chocolate Chip cookie. Keep building with a scoop of the Madagascan Vanilla ice cream, more indulgent cookie chunks (don’t hold back on how much you add). To finish, add a final scoop of Madagascan Vanilla ice cream, strawberries, a handful of sprinkles, and a drizzle of Mörk chocolate sauce.

Et voila, you have the perfect ice cream sundae.
